Drake has scrapped plans to release a remix of his Wu-Tang Clan tribute track with the legendary rappers themselves because the verse band leader RZA created was too “hard”.

RZA, Ghostface Killah and U-God had recorded a remix of Drizzy’s track Wu-Tang Forever last year around the same time his Nothing Was the Same album was dropping.

But a year later, and the remix has not seen the light of day. RZA reveals that the tons of his guest verse didn’t suit the song and it was therefore axed.

U-God tells MTV in a recent interview:

“I guess we came too hard for him; he wanted us to talk about broads. We had to write it real fast. No lie, I probably had about six hours to write this thing. At the time, I wasn’t feeling woman-y — I was feeling hard as nails. So, I wrote him a hard as nail rhyme, and we was talking about something totally different, so the subject matter didn’t really mesh.”

No love lost though, Ghostface Killah says that they are still big fans of the Hold On, We’re Going Home hit maker insisting “I like Drake, though. I like him because he pays homage. But at the end of the day, he knows how to rhyme. He’s not weak.”
